Def Leppard and their fans left the Port Of Miami, FL on this day in 2016 on the first day of the Hysteria On The High Seas cruise.

The Hysteria On The High Seas Cruise took place between 21st to 25th January.

The cruise ship MSC Divina left the Port of Miami in Florida about 30 mins after the scheduled time of 5pm ET.

Their next port of call was Freeport on Grand Bahama Island at 8am local time.

The band and host Eddie Trunk greeted their guests in the pool area of the ship which was captured on video.

One year on the ship is currently on a cruise from Miami, FL to San Juan, Puerto Rico (and still afloat...).

View the gallery of Fan Photos which were sent in by Chele Drappel last year and the many photos that were posted online on the day.

The band would not perform until the day after when it became clear things were not all well as they appeared to be when they set sail. Although if you watch Joe's reaction to being asked to speak to the fans you can see he was a bit reluctant.
